Jef­fer­son Street Books will host a book sign­ing to­day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. fea­tur­ing El Do­rado na­tive John Shrews­bury pro­mot­ing his book, “Your Re­tire­ment Should Be More: How to Har­ness the Power of More in Your Re­tire­ment” with co-au­thor Janet Walker.

Pro­duced by Gen Wealth, a fi­nan­cial ad­vis­ing firm, the book fo­cuses on the ben­e­fit of hav­ing a fi­nan­cial ad­vi­sor for re­tire­ment, said Ginger Young, Mar­ket­ing and Event Plan­ner and Con­tent Ed­i­tor for Gen Wealth.

“They will learn the value of hav­ing a fi­nan­cial ad­vi­sor for plan­ning for re­tire­ment,” Young said.

The book shows read­ers how hav­ing re­tire­ment sav­ings is not the same as hav­ing a re­tire­ment plan, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease.

“In my 30 years in the fi­nan­cial in­dus­try, I have found that peo­ple are of­ten fooled into think­ing that they have ev­ery­thing cov­ered with re­tire­ment

sim­ply by hav­ing an ac­count like a 401k or IRA [In­di­vid­ual Re­tire­ment Ac­count],” Shrews­bury said in the press re­lease. “We wrote our book to make sure they have the ed­u­ca­tion on these is­sues to make sure their re­tire­ment is ev­ery­thing it needs to be.”

Ac­cord­ing to the press re­lease, the authors use their com­bined ex­pe­ri­ence in the fi­nan­cial ser­vices in­dus­try to help read­ers make the most of their re­tire­ment. Young said GenWealth’s fi­nan­cial plan­ning ser­vices are client-, ed­u­ca­tion- and strat­egy-based.

“Our be­lief is that re­tire­ment re­ally can be more for many peo­ple, but it takes an un­der­stand­ing of points that go be­yond tra­di­tional in­vest­ing. We have al­ways fo­cused on pro­vid­ing wise, knowl­edge­able coun­sel, with the in­tent of do­ing so in a prac­ti­cal, ap­pli­ca­ble way for peo­ple. It is our hope this book does ex­actly that in help­ing peo­ple pre­pare for their re­tire­ment,” Walker said in the press re­lease.

Shrews­bury and Walker are not ex­pected to give a pre­sen­ta­tion at the event. Char­lie Skinner, the man­ager of the El Do­rado GenWealth of­fice, will also be in at­ten­dance.

“We want to be able to get to know our clients,” Young said. “We value that re­la­tion­ship.”

“Your Re­tire­ment Should Be more: How to Har­ness the Power of More in Your Re­tire­ment” is avail­able for sale at Jef­fer­son Street Books as well as on­line and at other book­stores.
